Dire Fakes, a tribute to the music of Dire Straits.
2002 Dire Fakes have put together a selection of the most popular Dire Straits
tracks, such as
Walk Of Life
Romeo And Juliet
Twisting By The Pool
Tunnel Of Love
Once Upon A Time In The West
Down To The Waterline
Brothers In Arms
Money For Nothing
So Far Away From Me
Sultans Of Swing
and many more.
The band is a 5 piece with sound tech at this present time, featuring -
Garnett – Lead Guitar
Mick Massey – Rhythm Guitar / B Vocals
Jon Smith – Bass Guitar / B Vocals
Gerry Durrant – Keyboards / B Vocals
Paul Bringloe – Drums & percussion
Dire Fakes have studied past live concert video footage to capture the sounds
of Dire Straits, as these tracks are longer with more arrangements and dynamics.
To recreate this, Alan uses 6 guitars and 3 amps that take center stage, these
add the sound variation required to perform the songs as intended, even clothing
has been hand made to add to the visual effect.
